Even when he’s lonely or sad, Kim Seon-ho will smile. “I am lucky. Why? Because I’m always smiling.”
I have always wanted to do something after watching The Tale of Nokdu. I tried writing a short review of the first act of the drama, but that didn’t make it into the world. I tried planning a proper overall review of the series, but I failed once again because I was too busy giggling and fawning over the finale. All of a sudden, it felt empty after the drama ended. I was grasping at straws, trying to find something to fill the gap and nurse my withdrawal from the drama. Soon, the post-drama interviews of the cast started pouring out, and a friend of mine on Twitter (you know who you are!) made a suggestion: why don’t I try to translate the interviews?
We never know that we all might be able to become a better person. Jang Dong-yoon’s honest, upright eyes seem to radiate that kind of strong belief.
Kim Seon-ho said this: “I am a slow person. The opportunities, however, came to me much earlier than expected; to the point of making me think that it was something more than what I deserved.” Thus, the present Kim Seon-ho is not even sure if he is doing his best enough at each moment. This is coming from the same Kim Seon-ho, whose ardent wish is not to bring misfortune and hardship caused by him, upon people around him.
One would be looking for his name and searching for his projects after watching him act. That is who Kim Seon-ho is: one who paints, leaves, and shares the biggest trace of himself.
